I’m running the Virgin London Marathon 2012 for The Lighthouse Group

This post is nothing more than a shameless request for sponsorship! As the title suggests, I am running the London marathon this year (in 96 days!) for the charity “The Lighthouse Group”. Check out the TLG site for more detail on what they do, but in a nutshell they are a charity that works with young people who have been excluded from school, at risk of exclusion or are at crisis point in their education. It’s a really worthwhile cause and my father-in-law has just been involved in opening a TLG center based in Normanton, Yorkshire

I’d appreciate any contribution, big or small! It’s fair to say I’m not quite the right build to run a marathon, so a little bit of sponsorship would be very encouraging! I’ve been training since late August last year, and am currently managing two 7 mile runs a week, plus a game of football and a couple of swims! Keep up to date with my progress over on my Runkeeper profile.
